Zork for the Calculator

Post by Falnar » Wed Oct 08, 2003 2:37 am

Would anyone by any chance know of a place to get Zork for the calculator, IE: the TI-83+
Zork would be so cool in math class :P I've been searching -all- over but to no avail, thanks to anyone who has any information.

Actually, that is a really great idea.  Someone should try and see if they can do this, or if it has already been done.

http://www.ticalc.org is a cool site, I couldn't find anything about Zork there, but then again the search function was down so I had to browse, good luck though.

I *might* programm it... but it's a real pain since I don't know how to use word-strings and such :( But it's something to do under Mathematics...

If I had computer games on my calculator, my math grades would have been even more abysmal than they were, lol!

Fantine, what do you think happened to mine...

I even made games on it, and I ran ZShell for running ASM games. But I coded stuff using the basic language and made an adventure game and an RPG, SADLY I lost them and I hadn't had the TI-85 PC link cable until later on. :-{ Which btw if someone wants to buy it from me? I will sell the cable for $20 + S/H

At least you had a good excuse. :) My excuse for poor math grades was...apathy, and the fact a good book was always more interesting than whatever it was my teachers were droning about.

Ah, I wax nostolgic...

My excuse for my poor ex- wait a minute, I'm still in school! Must be pre-nostalgic or something...
